Plug them into a circuit with enough capacity. First, read the package and find out how many watts each string is. Add them up. Then figure out what else is on the same circuit you connect them too. In many homes, the front porch receptacle is on the same circuit as the bathrooms, garage, back porch, and basement receptacles. So if you have a freezer in the basement and run a hair dryer in the bathroom, you're in trouble.
